5 Most Important Ingredients In Every Pre Workout
Every ingredient in your pre-workout matters. Period. The amount of each ingredient is just as important. Especially with most supplement companies under dosing and cutting for more $$$. However we have thought long and hard about the absolute most important ingredients that every pre workout should include if they are going to call themselves a preworkout. So this is Alpha Bata's list of the most important building block ingredients in a pre workout.
1. Creatine Monohydrate
We know. Creatine has other forms hcl, ethyl, malate.... blah blah blah. Creatine monohydrate is the oldest and most studied form of creatine and in our studies its also the best. Creatine will give you extra energy during a workout and helps your muscles produce ATP to drive energy. ABOSULUTE MUST!
2. Citrulline Malate
Arganine used to be the big thing. Now its Citrulline Malate. Basically a better form of arganine, citrulline is what gives you that ridiculous pump in the gym. Which is going to help you lift more weight and get results faster. Paired with L-ornithine (included in The Brutal Beast) you will get a pump that is out of this world.
3. Betaine Anhydrous
Betaine Anyhydrous is extremely good at its job. Its basically an all around powerhouse supplement. It will help with strength and endurance and has been known to help with depression as well. Sadly most pre workouts neglect this supplement.
BCAAs are essential. However you get them from the food you eat everyday. But, you will probably never get the amount that your body needs and its good to have extra amino acids in your system right before you hit the gym. We think every pre workout should at least throw 2-3 grams in.
5. Mood Boosters
Before you say that shouldn't be a building block, you should think twice. Nobody wants to hit a hard hour and a half workout feeling down in the dumps. Plus, these mood boosters we are talking about are all amino acids such as L-Tyrosine, L-Theanine and so on. These will give you that added happy feeling as well as help with overall performance, because after all, they are still amino acids. We believe our O.G. blends at Alpha Bata are the best mood boosters ever created. See for yourself.
Honerable Mention: Beta Alanine
Beta Alanine is great. However we dont believe its the most important. Plus, most chicks dont want to feel like fire ants are eating their face.
